Stop Everything: The F*cking Catalina Wine Mixer Is Now A Real Thing

By

Unless you're the luckiest person in the world, you probably work with someone who relies on movies quotes and pop culture references in lieu of actually being funny.

You may know this person better as "the girl who still quotes 'Borat' in 2015" or "the guy who took the time to like every single Vince Vaughn movie on Facebook."

These are the types of people who spend their entire lives waiting for someone to utter the words, "Catalina Wine Mixer," so they can materialize out of thin and air yell, "POW," before saying, "You know? Like in 'Step Brothers?'" -- just in case you didn't get the reference.

I assume these are also going to be the people in attendance at the 1st Annual Catalina Wine Mixer now that the fictional helicopter leasing event has become a reality.

On Sunday, September 13, 2015, the island will host a food, wine and musical festival in the spirit of the gala that was ruined and simultaneously salvaged by Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly back in 2008.

While the day might be filled with references to boats and hos and 1980s Joel, neither Horatio Sanz or any other members of Uptown Girl will be taking the stage.

However, there will be a performance by The Dan Band, the ensemble that performed a stunning cover of "Total Eclipse of the Heart" in "Old School."

When you mix that with a lot of wine, you've got a recipe for a fantastic day. POW!
